In today’s competitive landscape, it’s no surprise that retailers are struggling to attract consumers – both online and in-store. In fact, BDO analysis found that 92 percent of companies noted risks related to U.S. growth and expansion, up from 56 percent in 2013. The brands that are attracting and retaining customers successfully are leveraging data to better target consumers.

However, data can be a very complex issue for retailers, as they’re not just pulling from large datasets, they’re also pulling from multiple sources. Consider all of the channels that go into a retail campaign: marketing funnel, social channels, customer data, lead generation data and so on. To manage campaigns effectively, retailers need to see the whole picture and know what data from which channels is most impacting their campaigns.
